and intolerance against women, supposedly prescribed by religion or
tradition, must be resolutely condemned. To that end, the Special
Rapporteur reiterates his recommendation that a seminar should be held on

rights, so as not only to identify manifestations of discrimination and
intolerance, but also to formulate practical recommendations and a plan
of action for eradicating such practices."
